Liverpool are reportedly one of three clubs to have made an offer to sign Lyon captain Memphis Depay this summer, with the Dutchman’s contract due to expire at the end of June – and Liverpool fans have responded to the reports on Twitter.
Still only 27, Depay has earned iconic status at Lyon in the four years he has been at the club for his performances – which have also earned him the captain’s armband. Despite an ACL injury, he has still clocked up 169 appearances in all competitions.
In that time, he has been involved in 121 goals – scoring 69 and creating 52 more. His form is incredible but the two parties have been unable to extend his contract and now, other European powerhouses are becoming interested – Liverpool being one.
Newspaper Marca claim Barcelona, Juventus and Liverpool have all tabled offers to sign the ex-PSV attacker on a free transfer. It is claimed that Barcelona is his preference, as it would see Depay reunited with his old Netherlands boss in Ronald Koeman.
Liverpool fans have reacted to the reports that Depay has emerged as a target for the Reds and that an offer has been tabled – and many are desperate to see him move to Merseyside despite his Manchester United past.
Some think he is the ideal replacement for Roberto Firmino.
He actually be a good depth player, he's not good enough to start, but he's certainly better than shaq and origi
